Full Review at **_Horror Focus_**
We Summon The Darkness has glimpses or originality and flare throughout, sprouting up through heaps of generic sequences that do more damage than good. Luck enough, these moments do add a little zest to the experience, and remind you that there is a healthy chunk of potential to be admired. Whether it’s the charming cast or the plentiful gore, there seems to be something that will keep everyone pleased, even if not fully satisfied. The gore is delicious, the home-invasion game of cat and mouse is entertaining, if a little watered down, and the characters are ultimately the saving grace here, even down to the “coke booger’ step-mum which add a tantalisingly fun element to the whole experience. Now, this won’t be breaking new ground by any means, but it’s still a passable way to kill 90 minutes.
Gory, entertaining and often funny at a flaw, boasted by charasmatic performances from Daddario and Hasson. Expect a plot with verve or ingenuity and you will come out of this with a whimper.
_**Wannabe Tarantino flick about a house of fools**_
In 1988, three ‘metalhead’ teen girls (Alexandra Daddario, Maddie Hasson & Amy Forsyth) travel the sticks of Indiana to a concert featuring the band Soldiers of Satan. They meet three guys (Keean Johnson, Logan Miller & Austin Swift) and take them to a mansion owned by Alexis’ dad to party wherein the fun eventually turns… horrific.
“We Summon the Darkness” (2019) is entertaining for the first act as it takes us back to 1988 and a metal concert, which features MF’s “Black Funeral,” but then it bogs down at a mansion for the rest of the movie where it becomes clear that the director & writer were shooting for a Tarantino-like picture.
The problem is, they ain’t Tarantino. They lack his writing talents, especially his great dialogues, plus they don’t have the quality actors to pull off the story. Don’t get me wrong, the six main actors do well for an Indie, but they’re not anywhere close to the level of John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bridget Fonda, Mélanie Laurent, Christoph Waltz, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, etc.
One problem is that the two main girls, Alexis (Daddario) & Val (Hasson), aren’t believable, and I’m talking about after the key revelation is unveiled. They shoot for 100 lb. psycho biyatches, but come across campy and not overly daunting, particularly the alluring Val. Sometimes the movie’s even humorous, making me wonder if it’s an intentional black comedy. In the mansion there’s a lot of screaming and bloodletting that gets eye-rolling and tedious, à la the last acts of “Psycho II” (1983), “Scream” (1996) and “The Hateful Eight” (2015).
The message is that appearances can be deceiving and the sheeple can be misguided or fooled, which is a good one, but I didn’t buy the twist’s revelations and I’m not even talking about the initial surprise so much, but rather the whole shebang. Then again, it could be argued that money is the root of all kinds of evil and well-meaning people HAVE been corrupted by the allure of filthy lucre and their followers misguided. Yet it seems too forced here, like the creators had a Lefty agenda and it’s off-putting. Give me “Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood” (2019) any day.
The film runs 1 hour, 30 minutes, and was shot in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
LET the 1980s’ DOGS LIE, ALREADY
Once again, a terrible plot, worse acting, and seriously bad, over-the-top, trying-too-hard ’80s references. Scant, terrible soundtrack. Too much forced, obvious use of Hot Topic T-shirts…
This film was apparently made by people who didn’t live in the 1980s, have bad memories of the ’80s, or weren’t in the “cool kid” club, then.
Dear Everyone trying to reproduce the 1980s:
Just stop it, already. You’re ridiculous.
I should have known when i saw that Johnny Knoxville was a preacher on TV that this would be terrible. The girls gave me some hope near the beginning but it really is a poor excuse for a movie. Bless them for trying. The tiny “Twist” revealed in a moment of the movie really doesnt deserve praise, its just a reason for stupid deaths. Then again, the costumes were pretty cute and true to time.
